I like Norm H and Sean Bass a lot. Norm's Cowboy post-game a must-hear no matter who his co-host is that particular season. But when the game was over I told Mrs. Plainsman that I had to leave to get by the channel to see what The Little One was slinging. I thought I would hear something like I heard when Mike R joined Diamond Talk after the defeat of the Yankees in the ALCS.
But Norm -- man, he brought me down, he just didn't seem into it at all. The callers also brought things to a halt. Sean was more animated, but the whole thing just wasn't jelling and I turned it off after about 45 minutes. I thought we might hear some -- possibly alcohol-fueled? nah -- celebratory Mike or Donovan or Gordon or George. Something, anything to mark the uniqueness of the moment and bring the scene to the P1. Followill?
Sure, they were there at the game, they wanted to go to the pressers and the locker room. OK, I'd be doing the same. Didn't do much for the the P1 who had to get up and go to a Monday job, though.
As I say, the Miami locale meant that these guys probably didn't have a convenient radio home to go to. But surely that could have been planned around. I thought sure I'd at least hear NBA Bob's sonorous tones commenting expertly on what happened and sharing his excitement. NBA Craig had to broadcast in a few hours, so his absence was understandable.
This morning I've been hearing what sounds like a "take that wich you" and "woooo" promo which may actually been what I was looking for. Did the gang get up broadcasting later at night?
PS: As I'm listening to the Museres, I'm hearing sound of our heroes on the scene fromt he night before. I assume that made it on the air in the wee hours? OK -- guess I just wasn't able to hang in long enough. Still think they should have had something for us for that first hour after the game.
